    Ah, I thought it was all new, so 2 weeks old £2,450 worth of kit. I never trust anything on eBay that asks for cash payment. That and adding a phone number is against their rules anyway isn't it?

    Or me, if I lived anywhere close. Seems a chancer, but nothing more. There will be better deals.

    I'll admit I would be happier with this shot if it wasn't for the box on the back of the bike, which gets in the way a bit. But the light is unusual. People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing that they like... :)

    Very nice David, I would have been tempted to crop out the car though, I'm sure you left it in for a reason, maybe that light and shadow? Maybe for perspective? I'd crop it out, but it's your image, and it's great all the same. BTW, the box doesn't bother me at all, I like how it captures the lighting

    In reply to my own post, in case anyone is interested, I contacted support who replied with the following:

    We are aware of the issue, and looking into a fix.
    The same also goes for ES 1.25x crop mode.
    I can’t give an ETA.

    Thanks! And yes, could do. I wanted to give a sense of being in traffic, and I quite liked the light on the headlamp, so I just darkened that part so it wasn't so distracting. But I think cropping it out would be a very valid choice.

    I know, me too! Bikes and 30 degree heat in the city though...difficult combo

    That's why I haven't got a bike over there! I'd love to ride rather than drive but a combination of 30+* heat and decent protective clothing (a must with the local driving "standard!" and roads) don't appeal as much as air con and putting up with traffic.

    30 Cannon Street, London. A quick effort as it was teeming with rain. Two shot vertical pano with an Olympus 35mm shift lens on XT2

    Hi gang,

    Apologies for the lack of input of late, not only was I laid up with a bad back for almost 2 weeks, we've been trying to buy a new house and move out of London, so my focus has been elsewhere. Anyway, the reason for my post......

    On Tuesday a good friend of mine is getting married (again). Just a small, quiet registry office job, but he's called me this afternoon as his photographer has let him down and he's asked if I can help him out. Not my normal thing, but he's a good mate (I was best man last time he got married).

    So, I have the following at my disposal - 16mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4, 60mm f2.4, 10-24 f4 & 50-140 f2.8. I was thinking body 1 - 35mm, body 2 16mm, with the 60mm & 50-140 in the bag. I do have a Fuji flash, but it's one of the smaller ones.

    Any other thoughts?

    I'd be inclined to keep it simple Steve, 35mm and 16mm. Unless you have access to a 16-55 f2.8

    Cheers Trev, I just thought the 50-140 would be useful if I wanted something a bit longer than 35mm. The 60mm was to shoot the rings, but I could probably do that with the 16 as it will focus quite closely.

    There wasn't much light this afternoon, but I got a little glimmer just as I got to this spot in Wytham Woods. Enough to be worth a shot. I'll try to get back when the oaks have turned, weather permitting of course...

    I think I'm going to be in Wales then :). But maybe it will still look good when I get back! Alternatively, I think frost/snow and mist would work well...

    Does anyone know if buying a Fuji XF lens from the dedicated Fuji Refurb Store is there a possible discount code you can use or has that finished?

    It NEVER applied to lenses. "however it did apply to cameras with attached lenses."
    It was and still is a way to get a cheap lens if It comes as part of a package. and then to sell on the body.
    Even though there is no longer any discount code available.
    It has always been a cheap way to buy a f2.8/4 18-55

    Does the refurb store get restocked in waves? It seems like all the main lenses are out of stock. Happy to wait for a few months, but ideally want a lens before Christmas.

    lenses never hang around for long. you need to keep a close watch.

    many of them are shop returns where people have changed their mind. it seems like the repair shop waits for them to build up before checking them and putting them up on the site.

    @Craikeybaby Next round of cashback deals are announced on Weds 10th Oct, last year they doubled cashback on Black Friday weekend (though a number of retailers put their 'usual' prices up for that weekend - it pays to order as soon as the deals are announced!!!) - hope that helps
